"Where To Invade Next is an expansive, hilarious, and subversive comedy in which the Academy Award®-winning director, playing the role of 'invader,' visits a host of nations to 'steal' some of their best ideas and bring them back home to the U.S. of A."
"The directors of The Best of Enemies, a documentary about the 1968 debates between Gore Vidal and William F. Buckley, could have produced a riveting movie simply by splicing together old debate footage. This movie is about many weighty matters--politics, ideology, history, society and the media--but the delicious spectacle of watching two sexy men in their prime, with rapier wit, speaking in the accents of a gone American elite, slicing each other into fine ribbons, makes the film a guilty indulgence.
These two ghosts from a bygone era still make great television. It worked so well, in fact, that the series of debates, created by ABC to attach to the two 1968 conventions–Republicans in Miami and Democrats in Chicago–became the prototype for every television talking head show for the next half-century.
Sadly, no one has ever done it better. ...
The Buckley-Vidal debates could be the high moment in the history of the televised American political debate. But the spectacle contained within itself the seed of the end too. Extreme civility was about to explode and cool William Buckley, whose fate it was to manifest that explosion, would regret it for the rest of his life."

"Το ντοκιμαντέρ του Γιώργου Αυγερόπουλου «Αγορά» (Agora), συνθέτει ένα ανακεφαλαιωτικό χρονικό της κοινωνικής τραγωδίας που μαστίζει την Ελλάδα την τελευταία πενταετία, θέτοντας κρίσιμα ερωτήματα για μια παγκόσμια συστημική κρίση σε εξέλιξη και μία ευρωπαϊκή διακυβέρνηση που διεξάγει οικονομικά πειράματα υψηλού ρίσκου χωρίς να υπολογίζει το ανθρώπινο κόστος."

Translated using Google Translate: "The documentary of George Avgeropoulos "Buy» (Agora), composes a summary chronicle of social tragedy plaguing Greece the last five years, posing critical questions for a global systemic crisis in progress and a European economic governance carried out risky experiments without count the human cost."
"People say that fashion moves faster and faster. More colours, more collections, more brands, more styles. But in reality the clothing industry has been crawling, in terms of innovation, for the last hundred years. Up until now. For the first time in history, the concept of clothing is about to change. And it’s our mission to explore it.
This film is not about the new, it’s about the next. Will mass consumption of clothing continue to escalate? Or will we return to creating quality and caring about what we wear?
Will the future be centred around smart clothing and new technologies? Or will we find innovation within organic and traditional methods? We meet with some of the world’s most progressive people in search of the answers.
The Next Black is produced by home appliance manufacturer AEG, with the goal to anticipate future washing needs and contribute in making the clothing industry more sustainable."
